4 Questions to help you sneak up on an illustration project.
On composing an illustration
I had a chat with my illustration mentor this morning.
We talked about ways to approach an illustration. I tried t distilled my notes from the chat into 4 questions that I can ask myself when approving a new spread for a picturebook or editorial illustration.
I even used the questions for the illustration of this newsletter.
Here they are:
How would I draw this if I drew this from imagination?
How can I bend reality to my artistic vision?
How do I design a scene, that’s easy to draw in my style?
How can I apply my illustration logic to this piece?
Up for discussion: I find these questions to be a great way to sneak up on a blank page and increase my odds for success. Which of these questions do you find the most helpful? Do you know of any other approaches? Leave a comment with your thoughts!
